The Studio On Liberty

The Studio on Liberty is located in Downtown Wooster, in a building that dates back to 1911. The space was originally a theater and later became a candy store for a new theater that was built next-door. In the late '30s and '40s it was a shoe repair store.  And, when Tracy took over the space in 2005, it was owned by White Jewelers.  In November of that year, after careful renovations, The Studio on Liberty opened.  Today, the building retains its original character -- and some original elements like the lights on the building facade, the gorgeous tin ceilings inside, and a couple of the old theater chairs -- while offering a warm and comfortable place to practice yoga, dance, Tai Chi, and meditation.
